Nano and Microsensors for Chemical and Biological Terrorism Surveillance
edited by Jeffrey B. H. Tok

Nano and Microsensors for Chemical and Biological Terrorism Surveillance provides readers with a brief, yet concise, collection of the latest advances in chemical and biological agent detection and/or their surveillance.

It compiles and gives in-depth detail on several detection schemes so that the reader can be provided with a general sense of these micro and nanoscale sensing systems and platforms.

Nano and Microsensors for Chemical and Biological Terrorism Surveillance covers both well established and "next-generation" micro- and nano-scale sensors and/or sensing platforms.

Sensors or sensing platforms covered range from the novel utilization of nanotubes, cantilevers, nano and/or microsized pores, engineered whole cell, to polymeric transistors for sensing purposes. The enabling of these new technologies will result in a much improved sensing network for the detection and surveillance of both chemical and biological warfare agents.
